A natural for stirring melodies, Berlin-based Sam Shure channels his all-around manifold array of talents into his new EP, Mirage, taken from his forthcoming debut album Laconia.

Mirage is a collaboration with my father who plays the Oud lines in it. I had the main groove of the track ready in my Berlin studio and felt like it needed some acoustic element. Kamala Bani was the first collaboration with amazing producer Cioz. We had the most fun working together in the studio and really enjoyed making the track. The track Encanto is for sure a nighttime track with a mystical atmosphere. I really love the vocal sample a lot because it has something of a magical spell.” Sam Shure.

With its versatile moods yet compact constructions, Mirage is a self-fulfilling prophecy. The EP features three tracks from the album, that draw on Sam’s jazzy roots while staying grounded in his usual melodic, mood-heavy aesthetic. With its warm tones, hazy pads and smart basslines, it creates a perfect ambiance for deep set dancefloors.

Having started his affair with music from a young age, Sam Shure’s native talent and his ever-evolving skillset dot him as one of the stand out artists rising this year. Releases on the likes of Stil vor Talent, Klassified Music and Katermukke‘s sister-label Mukke have cemented him as a respected artist in his own right, while his DJ sets are full of the Berliner’s infectious and vivacious energy.
